“ALL NOBLE THINGS ARE DIFFICULT” If we are going to live as disciples of Jesus, we have to remember that all noble things are difficult. The Christian life is gloriously difficult, but the difficulty of it does not make us faint and cave in, it rouses us up to overcome. Do we so appreciate the marvelous salvation of Jesus Christ that we are our utmost for His highest? God saves men by His sovereign grace through the Atonement of Jesus. He works in us to will and to do of His good pleasure; but we have to work out that salvation in practical living (Matthew 7:13-14).

“I Want To Love” continues: He loves us even when we don’t love Him back. Most of us won’t tell another person we love them, because they didn’t tell us they love us first. On the other hand, some of us vow to never say it again if the person doesn’t say it back. We can be so conditional. If we remember God loves us unconditional. The fact is, God tells us in His word to love one another (John 13:34-35). Yet we have problems with speaking to one another in our own Churches. We will walk right pass the usher, sit down next to someone, and not have said a word to anyone. Paying your tithes and smiling in the preacher and his family faces is not enough to cut it. God said He Loves everyone (Mark 12 :31). God’s love is not affiliated with clicks. His love doesn’t care about your financial status. He created us in His image (Genesis 1:27). His image is love and kindness. It is time to come out of the four walls of the church and go into the four corners of the earth. Love the poor, love the needy, love the drunk, the addict, the lonely, the confused, and many others (Matthew 25:31-40). He said if you take care of the poor, you will lack nothing (Proverbs 28:27). He also says if you seek His kingdom first and His righteousness all things will be added to you (Matthew 6:33). More next week about why it is a must that we learn to “LOVE.”
